12-foot python found safe after escaping from mall aquarium exhibit

BATON ROUGE, La. / CNN — The search for Cara, a 12-foot serpent that ditched her mall aquarium exhibit on Monday, has ended happily.

The yellow Burmese python was found “safe and healthy” on Thursday after a search that closed the Blue Zoo Aquarium at the Mall of Louisiana in Baton Rouge for several days, the aquarium said in a Facebook post.

Rescuers pulled Cara from the inside of a high wall. They had to cut a hole and use a ladder to bring the snake to safety.

“We couldn’t be more excited to share with you that the search is over!” the facility’s said in the Facebook post.

Aquarium workers believe Cara escaped from her exhibit Monday night through brute force, bending through a corner of her tank.

The entire mall — home to more than 140 stores — closed briefly Tuesday morning when Cara was discovered missing. All tenants except for the aquarium soon reopened after Blue Zoo staff persuaded others that Cara was likely hidden somewhere in the store.

Burmese pythons aren’t venomous and kill their prey by constricting them. They rarely attack humans.

Blue Zoo, which features Cara in aquarium shows for children, opened its mall location in April.
